At least three ways spring to mind:

 1) Export to mbox, copy mbox-file, import from mbox (by appending til
    /var/spool/username - quick'n'dirty - or perhaps using nndoc:)

 2) Copy the files in question to the second machine, read them
    (using nndir: or nneething:) - copy them to their

 3) Copy from the first machine to a temporary folder on an
    IMAP-server, copy them from the IMAP-server to the appropriate
    nnml:-folder on the second machine.
